Affinity Designer for iPad - 1.10.0


Recommended Posts

  • Moderators

We are pleased to announce an update for the iPad release of Affinity Designer, version 1.10.0
(note this 1.10.0 build calls itself 1.10.X in the about box, but is nevertheless 1.10.0 for bug reporting purposes)

Changes in this build

The changes in Affinity Designer for iPad 1.10.0 (over the last release  Affinity Designer for iPad 1.9.2) are as follows:

Fixes & Improvements:

  • Improved performance with:
    • Heavily layered documents (faster rendering during panning and text reflow).
    • Placed images.
    • Text.
    • Embedded documents.
    • Low-memory conditions.
  • Improved SVG import/export.
  • Added support for most emoji.
  • Assorted other small fixes.
  • Help & localisation improvements.

(IGNORE NEXT LINE, it is for 1.10.0 and above) 
The improvements in 1.10 are listed in some detail in this 1.10.0 Designer iPadOS update announcement 


UPDATING TO THIS VERSION (free for existing customers)

The software version can be seen on the corner of preferences screen.

Your Affinity iPad apps should update automatically next time you run them. However, you do need to be logged in with the same Apple ID you used to buy them.

If the automatic update does not happen for you, go to the iPad Store app and go to Updates. Once you’re there, tap near the top of the screen where it states 'Updates' and then hold, pull down and then release. This should manually refresh the updates page. However, don’t panic if the updates are not available for you yet—Apple sometimes phase roll outs around the world and this can take up to 24 hours.

I am curious about the version numbers for Affinity Designer on iOS.

The latest beta called itself 1.10.8, and the new retail version calls itself 1.10.3. But we're supposed to call it 1.10.0 "for bug reporting purposes"?

Wouldn't it be easier on all of us if it simply used a numbering scheme like Affinity Photo on iOS uses (which is similar to what happens on the desktop versions,

Yes it would be easier, but it's not what we have. Please use 1.10.0 (as reported in the store) or 1.10.0/1.10.3 as reported in the release build. Matt uses a different approach to versioning, and this release was the third submissions of 1.10.0 to the iPad store, whereas the beta had 8 submissions of 1.10.0 beta to Testflight.
